the essentials in brief
- In Germany, a 3G certificate has been mandatory in public transport since Wednesday.
- This also has an impact on the Basel region.
- Anyone wishing to cross the border must have a 3G certificate with them.
Since (today) Wednesday a 3G certificate has been mandatory in trains and buses in Germany. This also has an impact on cross-border tram, bus and S-Bahn traffic in the Basel region.
Anyone who crosses the border to Lörrach or Weil am Rhein with the regional S-Bahn must have a 3G certificate with them. The SBB point this out on their website. Schoolchildren and children under six years of age are exempt from this compulsory certificate.
On Tuesday evening, their spokeswoman could not say whether this certificate requirement also applies to the network of Basler Verkehrs-Betriebe (BVB). In this regard, there is still an exchange with the system leadership SBB and PostBus AG. This to clarify whether the 3G rule also applies to our cross-border lines, she said when asked by the Keystone-SDA news agency.
